The company once hailed as Europe’s largest solar panel producer filed for bankruptcy Wednesday, blaming cheap Chinese panels for flooding the market.

“The ongoing price erosion and the development of the business” has left the company “over-indebted and thus obliged to file for insolvency proceedings,” SolarWorld, which is also the largest U.S. solar panel maker, said in a statement.

The filing comes after SolarWorld was forced to lay off employees earlier this year. The company employs around 3,000 people, including 800 in

Would you let the IRS automatically file your taxes on your behalf?

Share

By Peter Hong at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

What’s the second most dangerous pickup line in America? “Hi, I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” The most dangerous, you ask?

“I’m from the IRS, and I’m here to help.”

Yet, that’s exactly what every American taxpayer will be hearing if the “Tax Filing Simplification Act” is ever enacted into law. Introduced by Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, this bill would direct our friends at the Internal Revenue Service to fill out your tax returns with information the IRS collects from your employer and your bank. All you have to do is sign on the dotted line — and pay the amount the IRS has so generously pre-determined

Focus Movers The Fiscal Times

By Theodore Cangero, American Institute for Economic Research

Internal migration has always been a part of America. The ability to move for a better job has promoted economic growth. AIER studies have shown that a better match between workers and employers helps productivity and wages.

A new article from the Mises Institute shows that Americans are also moving for favorable tax environments. For example, retirees move to Florida because it lacks a state income tax. People leave New York State because of high property taxes. Businesses leave California for Texas because of lower income taxes.

New York, California, and Illinois saw the largest number of people leave in 2015. New York State saw 191,000 residents move

3 Government Programs That Are Dangerously in the Red

By /TheFiscalTimes

Washington Editor and D.C. Bureau Chief Eric Pianin is a veteran journalist who has covered the federal government, congressional budget and tax issues, and national politics.

Deficit hawks have plenty to worry about these days. The Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress are pushing for deep tax cuts, huge increases in defense spending, the construction of an expensive wall along the Mexican border and other projects that will almost certainly push the national debt well above $20 trillion in the coming years.

And as U.S. Comptroller General Gene L. Dodaro, who directs the Government Accountability Office, warned the House Budget Committee last week, huge overpayments for Medicare, Medicaid and Earned Income Tax Credits have emerged as a

Want to Slash the Deficit? Stop the Billions in Improper Government Payments

Share

Reuters/Jonathan Ernst By /The Fiscal Times

In a report to Congress this week, U.S. Comptroller General Gene L. Dodaro voiced alarm over steadily mounting government overpayments for Medicare, Medicaid and Earned Income Tax Credits that are complicating efforts by Congress and the administration to contain the budget deficit.

Last year alone, the government made a total of $144.3 billion in improper or unjustifiable payments, including $59.7 billion in Medicare reimbursements, $36.3 billion in Medicaid billings, and $16.8 billion in refundable tax credits for poor working families and individuals.

Since fiscal 2013 – when many agencies began reporting improper payments for the first time — cumulative improper payments have totaled over $1.2 trillion, according to the Government Accountability Office.

“Improper

JEBB HARRIS, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

By |at the Orange County Register

It’s been nearly 40 years since Californians revolted against runaway taxation by voting for Proposition 13, which reduced property taxes. But today California still has the 10th highest burden in the country when property tax revenues are compared to median household incomes, the Register reported. The real estate comeback and rising property values have driven inflation-adjusted property taxes from $788 per person after Prop. 13 took effect in 1978, to about $1,430 in 2014.

One reason that politicians continue

How Court Reviewing Challenge to Trump’s Travel Ban Swung Left Under Obama

Josh Siegel is the news editor for The Daily Signal.

The federal appeals court deciding the constitutionality of President Donald Trump’s travel ban was once reliably conservative. But it underwent a transformation during the Obama administration, and Democratic appointees now outnumber Republican appointees 2 to 1.

A New York Times Magazine article in March 2003 vividly described the Richmond, Virginia-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit as the “shrewdest, most aggressively

Property Taxes to Fund Homes for School Principals and Teachers

 

By Ron Boltz of the Pennsylvania Liberty Alliance

 

There are many reasons why the PA Liberty Alliance supports school property tax elimination, but at the core of our support for this measure is a basic desire to be treated uniformly and fairly as taxpayers, as well as a belief in our right to be secure in our homes without fear of the government confiscating it.

 

The goal has always been simple…expand the tax base and tax us all exactly the same way. The school property tax results in a highly regressive, arbitrary, and unfair system where people pay extremely different rates even if income levels and home values are the
